WOLF!, the Brooklyn-based guitarist Scott Metzger’s “Telecaster rock trio” with bassist Jon Shaw and drummer Taylor Floreth, have returned after a six year hiatus with a new EP, Adult Entertainment, to be released via Royal Potato Family on October 28th, 2022. This time around, their songs weave together elements of Surf, Rockabilly, Boogaloo, and more. The six track collection’s first single, “Ratso,” is out now.
Scott Metzger comments:
We had WOLF! up and running pretty hard back in 2016. There were two really great albums, a bunch of sold out shows, a few songs licensed to film and television and then for a laundry list of reasons, some still even unclear to us as a band, our attention got pulled towards other endeavors. In 2018, we ducked back into the studio and put down some tracks, but again life pointed us in other directions and the recordings wound up on the back burner. As things started to open up following the pandemic, it quickly became apparent that it was time to finish up the EP and get the band back out playing shows again.
Recorded at Restoration Sound in Brooklyn, NY and mixed by Chris Connors, Adult Entertainment will be unveiled with four singles over the coming weeks leading up through its release. After a performance in Brooklyn’s Industry City this summer, WOLF! will play four shows this Fall in the Northeast with more dates being planned for 2023.
Adult Entertainment is the second major release this year from Metzger, who also plays in Grateful Dead revivalists Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, following his solo acoustic guitar album debut, Too Close To Reason.
